Map of some Cree Place Names

The Cree have an historical presence over a large region of central and northern Alberta. However, Cree place names exist in other regions too. About half the official names of native origin in Alberta are linked to the Cree. Considering territorial shifts, other place names may have preceded the Cree's. In many cases we know of multiple Native names for a geographical feature with a Cree name.
